CNN Money has their own breakdown of what everything in the Wii U costs. I'm not sure how accurate they are but here is what they're saying.
Wii U RAM (2GB) $6, Wii U Flash Memory (8GB model) $6, case and everything else ($79), processor $40
Wii U console itself total cost: $228
Game Pad components: $30
Wii U Game Pad total cost: $79 (they say the Wii U Game Pad's 6.2 inch display costs $24)
What do you guys think? Is CNN wrong? How do you think Nintendo should cut costs to make the Wii U cheaper?
